Work History

Years Employer Title Department Responsibilities
Years: 2007 to 2009 Employer: Private Patent Searching Consultant Title: Consultant Department: Owner Responsibilities: Private Patent Searching Consultant performing searches for Pharmaceutical and Chemical clients, Law Firms.
Years: 1995 to 2007 Employer: E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. INC Title: Information Scientist - PhD level Department: Central Research & Development, Patents Group Responsibilities: He was the primary chemical structure searcher at E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. Inc for 12 years. He possesses expertise in the entire spectrum of chemical searching methods, databases and resources required for a thoroughly comprehensive search on chemical substances, both generic and Markush disclosures, chemical process/preparation as well as chemical formulation patents. He has experience in searching patents, literature, substances as well as non-traditional data sources and can search an extremely wide scope, using obscure methods and resources as well as traditional ones if necessary.

My experience and expertise includes all types of searching, Domination/Freedom to Operate, Anticipation/Patentability, Validity/Infringement as well as general Background/State of the Art searches. My typical searches during employment at this company were worldwide in scope and very rarely were limited to US patents only. Most patentability searches were of very high complexity, such as search queries with 4-6 pages of R-groups, so I am able to competently perform a search at any level of complexity. My experience includes producing a highly refined, value added search report of only highly relevant references and disclosures.

Years: 1989 to 1995 Employer: E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. INC Title: Synthetic Organic Chemist Department: Stine Haskell Research Center Responsibilities: Prepared organic compounds using synthetic methods for testing as agricultural chemicals.
